I decluttered my office yesterday.
With stacks of file folders, writer's magazines and pages of scrap-printed paper burying my desk--I knew the time had come. My room to be creative looked more like a rodeo and the bull won.
The final result? I sat at my desk with two small folders, a computer and an open notebook and I accomplished more than I had in a long time. Sometimes it takes a little work to get the work we need done.
What's cluttering up your life and keeping you from accomplishing your writing goals? Do you need to toss away some of the stuff that is dragging you down--maybe the voice in your head telling you that you aren't good enough or no one will ever want to read your words anyway? Why bother?
Today when you go to your area and sit your seat in the chair and stare at that empty screen--think about what is slowing you down from doing what you love.
Now if I could only pen the bull from the rest of my house.
